Frequently Asked Questions

What are short-term loans?

Short-term loans, frequently referred to as payday loans, are a fast way to borrow funds to cover emergency expenses. If you find yourself in a financial bind before your next paycheck, a short-term loan may be beneficial for you. Essentially, they allow you to borrow a certain amount of money, typically between $100-$1,000, with the agreement that you will repay your loan the following payday. It is important to explore different options available to you and find the best one to address your unique financial situation.

Am I eligible for a short-term loan?

  • You have worked at your current job for a minimum of 3 months.

What are the advantages of taking out a short-term loan?

Short-term loans are a good way to get connected with the funds you need, quickly and without a lot of hassle. Fees associated with short-term loans are frequently lower than those associated with overdraft and credit card late fees. You should always research your alternatives before taking out a short-term loan.

How much money can I borrow?

Typically, the maximum amount of money that short-term lenders will let you borrow is $1,000. The amount of money that you can borrow is determined by a number of factors: the maximum amount allowed by your state; your monthly salary; and your ability to repay the loan.
